Favourite Lolita Brand – Angelic Pretty

I think everyone has clothing brands that they have a special place in their heart reserved for. For lolita, mine is Angelic Pretty. My dream dress list could have the majority fulfilled with a giant, debt inducing shopping spree there (If they happened to re-release all my favourites at once!). So I have decided to do a post showing you why I love Angelic Pretty! It will show my (more recent) dream prints from them, so it will be biased towards the style I like. They also do some more gothic style stuff too!

All Images belong to Angelic Pretty, though I had to find some via tumblr/other blogs! I have linked where I found the Image so click the pictures for that (since most the dresses are no longer in stores.)

Melody Toys

This is their newly released print. I chose the high waist JSK to show you here because it’s my favourite of the series! I just love the cute detail on the top of the dress and those ruffles around the sleeves. This one is still being sold on Angelic Pretty (I found it on the European Site) so snap it up now while you still can! Though beware it does cost about Β£150!

Misty Sky

I was annoyed that I didn’t get myself the Light Blue JSK when I had the money saved up, but I left it too late! 😦 Hopefully they will do another re-release at the exact point I have money again πŸ˜‰ For those of you that dislike lolita shapes of dresses, Black Milk did a very similar print for a skater dress (see here) that you may be able to find someone selling since unfortunately it has sold out! I find the cloudy blue sky print so charming and relaxing. The floaty material of the AP dress is so lovely too.

Romantic Rose Letter

Another one that I didn’t decide I liked enough on time to get! My favourite was the skirt, I wasn’t a fan of the shapes of the top halves of this set. The print is lovely though, as is suggested by the name, it is very romantic. I would have loved to wear it with lots of floral hair accessories. The socks are really cute too. I love the ballet-style ribbon effect.

Sugar Hearts

The JSK is my favourite, it’s just such a cute print and I love the shape and the flowy light fabric. I think it would be really great in summer. I could make a ton of cute love heart jewellery to go with this, along with matching nails.

Ok so now I have shown you my favourite brand and why, what is your favourite? What would be your dream print from there? I would love to hear from you all πŸ™‚

Bodyline Wishlist

In my last post about my goals for this year I mentioned how I wanted to get my first Lolita Outfit. I have been browsing sites ever since looking for that perfect first dress and my searches on Bodyline have come up with a huge list of things I would like! Unfortunately I can’t afford to get all of them just yet, hopefully I can be decisive enough to pick soon.Here is my Bodyline wishlist.

All pictures are used from the Bodyline site please click them if you wish to visit the page!

Image

The Ice cream cones are so sweet and summery. And in case you were wondering, Yes that is Venus Angelic modelling for them. Her hair and make up are so adorable!

Image

This skirt makes me hungry just looking at it!

Image

A lovely girly skirt. Bodyline does have good blouses to go with all these skirts, they just aren’t included here for the sake of keeping this post a tolerable length.

Image

Teddy bears are so snuggly looking :3 and I bet this skirt would go with so many things.

Image

This skirts looks really high quality and has cute print. It has a slight sheen which usually looks cheap but I think it makes this skirt look more silky and glowing. Hopefully that’s still how it looks in person!

Image

This looks super soft, and pretty warm. Though I’m not sure when I’d ever need to just warm my shoulders ;P It think it would look great with the pink teddy bear skirt!

Image

These shoes look really dolly like and cute! I also read a review by a cute lolita blogger called Luna Rain saying she found them comfy,Β  (Click her name to have a peek at her blog)which is great because I’m such a wimp with umcomfortable shoes. I think my feet have skin like tissue paper or something >.<

Hopefully I will be updating you all with a review of a lovely outfit in a couple months! Damn indecisiveness >.<

*+*What are you planning for your next lolita (or gyaru) purchase?*+*

Angelic Pretty Salopettes

Image

These slightly bizarre dress/overall/pinafore things called Salopettes have recently grown in popularity amongst the Lolita community, whilst many others debate if it is actually something that belongs in the lolita style. When I first saw them the shape put me off, but they have grown on me since seeing more people wear them in cute coordinates and now I think they are really adorable!

Image

The lolita brand Angelic Pretty have made salopettes in the same lovely prints as their lolita dresses, but the shape is different to what most people would identify as a lolita dress. Personally, I love lots of different types of fashion so I don’t really care if these are or aren’t lolita. I just love the colourful, girly prints!

Image

You would need to wear a shirt or some other kind of top underneath, just like you would with dungarees. Lots of the salopettes have shorter skirts than other Angelic Pretty dresses, which I think is good for somebody that isn’t a lolita because it’s probably closer to what they would normally wear.

Image

I just love the cute bunny hood on this one!

I think that these would fit in really well with lots of other sweeter styles, like Fairy Kei or Dolly style. Since they are a lot more open at the top it also means it should be easier to find ones that fit a larger bust, which is a problem many westerners have with buying from Japanese brands. I have also heard of replica salopettes that don’t carry the same large price tag as the brand version, though be a bit careful because the quality will be less than that of a brand.

Sunday Style Inspiration!: Sui Princess

My second Sunday Style Inspiration post! This one is about a blog I have followed for quite a while now, one of the first Hime Gyaru blogs I found. Sui Princess (aka Alina) is from Germany, she dresses Hime Gyaru, Hime Kaji and sometimes her outfits can have lolita inspirations to them. She has recently married her American Boyfriend, I wish them both the best! ^-^

You can read her blog here, and her Tumblr (where I found all these pictures of her) is here.

Image

I love her make up here! The hair looks great too πŸ™‚

Image

Here she is with a much more Lolita-esque look.

Image

She has such pretty Shoes! Also I love the Giant Unicorn! I really want one too.

Image

Here she is with a Hime Gyaru look. That bag is just adorable! Plus I really love her hair here too.

She does her style really well. She always looks really immaculate and well-groomed. Her hair must take so much work everyday!

*~*Hope you have enjoyed my Second Sunday Style Inspiration! See you next week for another one!*~*

MA*RS Spring collection 2013

I’ve done some snooping through the new Spring collection on the MA*RS website, I find a lot of the actual MA*RS stuff isn’t something I would wear really, and this collection is no exception. There are some items that are just lovely though. I have taken all images off the MA*RS online shop, just click on the picture to go to that item. If you want to browse the new collection click here.

Image

First up is this dress, the colours are really striking and pretty, and I do like the look of the fabric. The shape just isn’t something I would personally wear. It must be impossible to hide your bra strap at the back.

Image

I do really like this dress. It has the same lovely material as the last one, but I find the shape much nicer and also the little pink underskirt is really cute. This is definitely something I could see myself wearing. It looks like it would be great if you were going for a more dark look, or for a change from pastel colours.

Image

I really like Hime Gyaru style, so obviously I have to show something from Princess Melody (Brand by Himena Osaki.) I tend to find this brand has a lot more stuff I would wear anyway, it very princess-like and cute. This dress looks perfect for summer days in the park.

*~*Hope you have enjoyed my quick sum up of the new MA*RS collection, I may do some other brands soon too!*~*

Hime Gyaru & Sweet Lolita without Pink!

Hime Gyaru and Sweet lolita both seem to have the same obsession with the colour pink, Hime Gyaru in particular. I absolutely love Pink, but I also love Blue and Yellow and the rest of the rainbow. When everyone is wearing the same colour it can start to get a bit monotone and boring. I really love when I see both styles done in different colours, I find it makes it stand out much more. Here I have found some images on the internet that are good examples of expanding your colour palette.

A Sweet Lolita looking lovely in Blue ❀ The pastel tone remains true to the style whilst creating a more calm, serene effect.

Image

This outfit still features pink, but the majority of it is yellow. I think it looks much softer and compliments the pink perfectly.

Now for the Hime Gyaru looks, I found it much more difficult to find ones lacking Pink since it’s so saturated into the style, but I think the effect is much more mature and elegant.

Image

A very classic looking Hime Gyaru, her look is very elegant and the lack of pink makes it look much more mature and grown up.
